Imagine being so scarred, creativity wilts and words flee. The after-her was filled with her even though she wasn’t there. But now that I have my voice back I want to share our story. Is it possible to enjoy a love story when you know it will end in the kind of heartache that slices time? I think so. Amalia is in the first year of a Music degree when she meets final year student and fellow Australian Alex. They are both swept away by the immediacy and intensity of their connection. They are, as the Chinese proverb has it, ‘like old friends at first sight,’ Gradually, it dawns upon them both that their feelings for one another may be more than platonic but dare they risk a romantic entanglement if it threatens this most perfect of friendships?

A queer When Harry Met Sally for the Sally Rooney Generation

‘Reader, imagine yielding to someone with a power so strong she has the ability to slice time. Before. Her. After.’
When first-year music student Amalia stumbles into her Oxford college bar, she has no idea that everything is about to change. Seated across from her is Alex, a velvety-voiced fellow Australian with eyes the colour of her native sky. They strike up a friendship that is immediate – its intensity both thrilling and terrifying.
As the days and weeks go by, they spend more and more time together: philosophising, hypothesising, questioning everything. There is nothing they cannot talk about, except the one thing that matters most. Dare they risk a romantic entanglement if it threatens this most perfect of friendships?

Set across four years and five cities, and suffused with music, literature, art, dance, sex, and the exquisite pain and pleasure of first love, 28 Questions is a passionate and unforgettable first novel about love in all its guises, growing up, and figuring out who you are along the way.
